RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The case of a former University of Virginia lacrosse player convicted of killing his former girlfriend will be heard by the state Court of Appeals.

George W. Huguely V is serving a 23-year sentence for the slaying of fellow student Yeardley Love, a suburban Baltimore woman who was also a U.Va. lacrosse player.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch says the decision this week by a single judge can be challenged by either party.

Huguely was convicted of second-degree murder in Love's May 2010 death. The Chevy Chase, Md., man killed Love in a violent confrontation in her Charlottesville apartment.

The two had had an on-again, off-again relationship.
